(WWNY) - A 28-year-old Carthage native, who was reported missing in New York City last month, has been found.

According to her family, Brittany Hobart has turned up in a hospital in New Jersey.

Brittany was last seen leaving her Manhattan home on August 30 at 2:30 p.m.

She was reported missing on September 4, prompting the New York City Police Department to ask for the public’s help in finding her.

Her father, Dan Hobart, tells 7 News that Brittany has no physical injuries, but exactly how she ended up in a New Jersey hospital is not yet known.

They said the family’s prayers have been answered and they can’t wait to see her.

“It’s the news we’ve been waiting for; 2 weeks, hearing nothing. Prayers are answered,” said Dan.

“It’s been rather traumatizing, this situation, but we’re all extremely ecstatic and we’re so glad that she is safe,” said Kim Pound, Brittany’s mother.

Pound says she intends to bring Brittany home.

The parents say they are grateful for everyone’s thoughts and prayers. Now the family asks for space as they navigate what’s ahead.
